About SOLO:

SOLO ARTISTS DOING THEIR OWN THING TOGETHER. 

Individual, but not alone in our efforts to bring our work to an audience. Together, but not collectively working together.

We formed SOLO, so as individual artists we can help each other promote, support, inspire, network, and make our careers more meaningful, purposeful and progressive – to succeed in our efforts in everything other than the effort of creativity. Everything SOLO does is to promote the individual. Our activities are focused on how to reach an audience for artists. Our aim is to organise, invent, and build various platforms to showcase as many artists as we can. Up to now, we have organised 3 exhibitions and our 4th is underway. We are selective in our processes, but at our core, we are democratic. The direction we take will be for the benefit of each participating artist. We are a not-for-profit group.

Please feel free to pass on these details to other artists you know.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
